's a radical party such as we've never seen in a presidential race before, that mitt romney has become a captive of it. as we have seen in the senate races that are shifting more and more towards democrats who are expected to lose or be competitive, it's about who the republicans are in washington and really radical message that romney is saddled with and he can't get out of it. the 47% remark is devastating because it really reflects what so many people in the republican majority in washington, in the house particularly, believe, that these are free loaders, that these are people that aren't worthy of our consideration really as human beings in our social contract. romney said out loud what many in his party leave and what an ideology in his party has come to embrace. it was no accident he said it. he stuck with it. >> that would be a radical shift from what a lot of people thought this campaign would be, lynn, and certainly what the romney campaign wanted it to be, which is a referendum on the president. do you agree that this could be a referendum on the republican party and republi
couple of days. both the president and mitt romney's camps are trying to lower expectations so that if someone does particularly well, it will be an apparent surprise. we heard over the weekend that mitt romney is working on some hard-hitting one-liners because he has that well-timed sense of humor thing. here's the president in response to that news. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. >> not so sure if he's a good zinger. the presidential last debate was back in 2008. he and mitt romney have never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course, we know that you'll be tuned in right here to current tv tv for all of our pre and post-debate coverage. 83% of respondents to a new abc news poll said they're interested in the debates as well. so you're in good company. the supreme court starts a new session today. it plans to take up at leas
washington university, showing president obama with a slight edge. governor romney was leading in may. now the latest poll shows president obama up with 50%. some other tidbits about this poll. it says -- obama leads from the on the issues of handling the economy, foreign policy, taxes, medicare, and standing up for the middle class. but romney leaves on better handling of the federal budget and spending. 38% of voters surveyed said the presidential debates are not an important factor in their vote and 84% said that they would not consider voting for another candidate. your top issues. we want to hear from romney and obama supporters and undecided voters. scott is up first in texas. caller: i believe romney will win with a landslide. the economy, gas prices, for and policy, the debt. the obama administration has been a total failure. i don't know what else we should have expected from the least qualified individual to ever hold office. host: what qualifies mitt romney for the presidency? caller: his entire life. he is one of the most compassionate, caring individuals. he is not the narciss
. the headline "go large, mitt." listen to this line. it makes you think how far ahead romney would be if he were actually running a campaign, but his unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing. and, mark, charles goes on to say what many conservatives have said over the past several weeks. he's behind and he continues to play small. >> he does, and he continues to have days that don't really amount to much. yesterday they had a sort of a veterans message and an economy message during events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the de

morning, everyone. mitt romney kicks off the final day of his bus tour in ohio today. he is hitting the trail solo since paul ryan will be in colorado, but the two did campaign together yesterday for the first time in almost a month. romney and ryan walked out to the song "the boys are back in town." that's cute. and then they tried to lead a chant, but that didn't go to well, since no one else chimed in. romney is down eight points against obama in ohio in the latest "washington post" poll. in that is bad news because of the fact that no republican candidate has ever taken the white house without care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and
